About UsUAB IG
"Know what you own, and why you own it" — Peter Lynch.
UAB IG was founded as a group of students who shared common interests in finance world and who missed the practical part of all this discipline in their grade.
Our mission focuses on educating our members on investment strategies and capital markets, we seek to provide an open forum to discuss financial news and market events, where all of our members can learn from each other. Additionally, we coordinate different types of events for our members like simulated trading competitions and seminars from experienced people in finances. .
Our structure is divided in two clubs operating in the same way: Club de Inversión UAB & Investment Group Barcelona . Each club has a President, who chairs meetings, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and analyst members.
UAB IG objective is to preserve and to grow the capital of our members thereby generating long-term returns over and above standard market returns.
We are looking for good companies whose intrinsic value is not reflected in their share price and which are managed by teams that look after the interests of shareholders.
As investors, we try to act rationally by not letting ourselves be carried away by emotions. We are not immune to the possibility of making mistakes. When we work we are fully conscious of the possibility of errors. If mistakes happen, they are accepted and acknowledged, and our aim is to not repeat those errors in the future.
